Translators without Borders

The volunteer translation organisation Translators Without Borders is expanding:
The mission of Translators without Borders (initially founded in France as Traducteurs sans frontières) is to translate knowledge for humanity. Translators without Borders has met that mission through quality humanitarian translations provided by a community of trained translators to vetted NGOs who focus on health, nutrition and education. On average,Translators without Borders volunteers translate millions of words per year, focusing on three types of humanitarian translations: crisis translations needed urgently to inform people in crisis, translations that support an NGO’s operations, and educational translations that directly support people in need. The non-profit organization’s vision is to expand its open digital platform to help make knowledge more accessible worldwide through humanitarian translations. The initial goal is to assist humanitarian organizations with two million dollars worth of free translations per year.
The organisation is currently seeking volunteer translators and proofreaders in any combination from or to English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.
